How contemporary Western's culture (and morale in particular) got formed out of two quite contradictory sources: Hellenism (revived during Renaissance) and Christianity - have those contradictions been resolved by now?
I will accept as the satisfactory answer if anyone would address one of the two following subquestions:
1)Specifically what about modern mass attitude (noticeable especially in USA ) with regards to certain values, such as towards considering personal appearance being more important than spiritual being and cult of the body, towards indulgence in sports and disregarding education?
2)Also what about dominance of atheism in Academical science ...
Do those two came as influence of Hellenism rather than from Christianity ?
